Who the team with the most impressive performance this week and why?
Avinash Kunnath, Pacific Takes & California Golden Blogs: Oregon. I have a rule: Anytime you set the single game record for total offense compiled and total points scored against the University of Southern California, you become my most impressive team of the week.
Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: UCLA. The Bruins simply destroyed an Arizona team that was among the hottest in the country. The Bruins didn't even let the Wildcats offense that had been running wild the last few weeks off the ground and they brutalized Arizona up front with their running game. The Bruins will be a team to watch as the season winds down if they can play like that every week.
Michael Preston, CougCenter: Oregon. The Bruins may have dismantled the Wildcats, but the Ducks were facing their biggest test of the year and passed with flying colors. Kenjon Barner and Marcus Mariota spent their Saturday taking the USC defense apart while Barner tried to his case even stronger for a Heisman trophy.
Andy Wooldridge, Building The Dam: Oregon. Kenjon Barner had the best day ever against USC, and as a result, the Duck offense had the best day ever against said Trojans. There have been months when USC didn't give up as many points and yards.
David Piper, Addicted to Quack: Oregon. I'm not happy with the defense, but I'll forgive it as the SC offense that we thought would content for a national championship showed up. But the Oregon offense--for as many impressive performances as Oregon has put on over the years, that takes the cake. Offensive perfection looks like that.
